Sex and the TLV

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]nyone who has been to Tel Aviv at least once knows that its fine citizens have a slightly different approach to life than most, here in our sun soaked haven it’s all about fun , fun, fun.  The excuse “it’s the middle of the week” is not valid here, on any given day at any hour you can find people lounging on the beach, the coffees houses packed, and the bars booming, and when it comes to everyone’s favorite pastime, sex, let’s just say fun, fun, fun doesn’t even begin to cover it.

The monogamous relationship is becoming a thing of a past, sure here and there you can find a happy couple in their mid-twenties, but for the most part their on the fast track to becoming extinct.  Tel-Avivs amazing weather, crazy nightlife, beautiful people and happy go lucky vibe definitely has an impact on the average twenty-something’s sex life.  Being open minded is the key to surviving the sex jungle that is Tel Aviv, anything goes, guy/girl, girl/girl, guy/guy, guy/girl/guy, and well you get the point.   It’s all about being free and easy here; no strings attached.  Let’s break it down and keep it simple—guys vs. girls.

Mmmm Sexy

GUYS,

the typical Tel-Avivi guy, no matter which category he falls under (hipster, mainstream, surfer etc.) only has one thing on his radar, girls and he only wants one thing from them, sex.  They will literally charm the pants off of them and before you know it ladies, you’re waking up in a strange bed next to guy who gives a wink and sends you on your way.  Now, to be fair, they don’t usually mean any harm, speaking by experience, they guys of Tel-Aviv are sure that girls think exactly the same as they do and are usually completely perplexed by the idea that speaking with the opposite sex can lead to anything more than a one night stand.

GIRLS,

the average Tel-Aviv chick is definitely a force to be reckoned with.  These beauties don a tough exterior, a soft interior and deep down they all have a fiery temper that no man wants to encounter.  Girls in this neck of the woods have a pretty nonchalant attitude towards sex or pseudo dating, you know, “just hanging out”, but from what I have witnesses these ladies don’t want to be toyed with.  Tel-Aviviot are pretty confusing and hard to read, they won’t ever tell you what they really want, so don’t feel bad if you find yourself dealing with a girl who tells you she in to one thing (i.e. no strings attached) but acts like she wants another (i.e. a boy-toy).   So guys if you’re in it just to score, you should be up front, the girls will probably go along with it, but don’t start taking numbers and getting lovey dovey if you know it’s just for the night.  [typography font="" size="19" size_format="px" color="#f47a62"]Warning:[/typography] These girls are fierce and travel in packs, you mess it one of them and you mess with them all.

Tel-Aviv is dripping with sex, there are erotic stores on main streets, bars on every corner, bikini clad bods roaming around and hotties that ooze sexual tension coming your way, how could anyone hold down a steady relationship and keep their eyes from wondering?    So, just like your favorite soap opera, this city is filled with young, carefree, impossibly good looking people, which means there are bound to be hook-ups, break-ups, one night stands, and drama on an hourly basis, the only difference is that your favorite TV drama is a guilty pleasure, sex in this city is just a way of life. [typography font="" size="19" size_format="px" color="#f47a62"]Warning:[/typography]:  This city is not for the weak at heart…or for those who lack contraception and the only thing you need to keep in mind is that no one, not girls and definitely not guys, in Tel-Aviv is looking to find “the one”.
